Some screwdrivers are designed to work with wrenches.

Slide the end of the wrench over the screwdriver, and you can get more torque.

It’s also useful for working with your screwdriver at awkward angles.

Yes.  Some have bolsters that are designed for this....

...but putting a wrench on a non- metallic handle isn't the right way...

 

Likewise, you can put an open end wrench through a box end, and stand on it.

But it's not good for the tools.

Some screwdrivers have a hole in the handle to slide another Phillips head for a pseudo T handle. Others have smaller sized wrench flats near the base of the handle.  These don't require you to own a 15/16" wrench😉.

These kits are absolutely needed for door hinge and striker plate screws. I bought a set back when I had the Beetle.

I just threw my hammer impact out (but kept the sockets). It broke internally a while back, and I'd kept it with the intent of someday trying to fix it. But, since the proliferation of battery powered impacts, I find I no longer need the hammer impact.

Every so often, the 'whacker' wins where everything else fails.  Usually with softer headed fasteners that

are corroded in...
